Sexual Avengers is a London-based network of queer campaigns and individuals making 2017 a year of radical queer activism and community building. We are using the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalisation to avenge centuries of oppression for radical queers through collective action, fun and fabulousness. Facebook page click here
We have a permanent open-space at LimeWharf E2 from 6.30-8.30 every Wednesday throughout 2017. We use this to meet, create and collaborate. We have energy, people power, skills, space, glitter and experience. We need you.
[LimeWharf is an accessible, gender-neutral space. Sexual Avengers is queer-led and queer-majority but we actively encourage participation by all genders and sexualities. We operate on trans-inclusive, intersectional feminist principles.] If you have any questions or would just like to speak to a human before you come in person please feel free to contact any of the organisers personally.
We want visibility. We want to see ourselves and our history reflected in our built environment and will not wait for the authorities to act. We want to build on the LGBTQI+s rich history of street-art and activism. We are reclaiming sites of personal LGBTQI+ importance, historical significance and current political provocation to continue our journey towards full LGBTQI_+ freedom.
Without a radical shift in archiving our history, our future will continue to be sidelined. Better knowledge and understanding of our history will lead to collective pride, empowerment and action when it comes to tackling the current challenges we face. ‘‘Yesterqueer’ exists to celebrate previous generations of queer activists and cultivate the next generation of artists, activists and change makers dedicated to ending homophobia, transphobia and all forms of oppression. Join the campaign to recognise and display London’s radical queer history. Join ‘Yesterqueer’! Day of action on February 22nd! To get involved please email email@example.com
